Default MS Composit Blades-need blade bushings from SAB blades

I purchased some MS Composit Rapid 28 cm blades for my Fireball.
But, the hole size in the root is about 4mm (larger than the stock 2.5mm bolts). What I'd like to do is obtain some scrap SAB 280 mm blades and push out the brass bushing for use in the MS blades.

Anyone have a broken set of SAB 280 mm blades they'd be willing to donate to the cause? I'll pay shipping.

And, I'll report back if these blades make any improvement to the flying characteristics. The chord is 33mm vs. 25mm for the SABs.
I plan on reducing pitch by 1 deg., and maybe headspeed as well, depending on how it flies.

I've used these blades in the 66cm length on a Goblin 630 a few years ago, to good effect. Lots of bite.
Thanks for reading.

I havenít found bushings or the right size brass tubing yet.
Thereís another guy on this forum that has flown them w/o bushings, and says theyíre ok.
So, I may just go for it once the winds die down a bit here. Iíll post up when I do...
